to find graffiti on the building, apparently including references to iraqis and "this is america." there is no indication whether this is in response to angry anti-u.s. protests in the muslim world. meanwhile, those protests seem to be escalating, spreading to more than a dozen countries in the middle east, including afghanistan. this has forces suffer more losses as the result of inciting attacks. >> these growing protests are threatening more and more americans abroad. it is also straining the fragile relationship in the region. there was barely room to stand in the streets. they were invigorated by the appearance of a hezbollah
leader. the prime minister ordered the suspension on youtube of the video of the of the movie that caused the issue. sirens blared where 200 afghans said fiat -- set fire to shops. all signs of a protest that is much more than about a disrespectful video. >> it is about what is taking place in these countries. it is of of going through a complex transition. >> a transition that is getting more fragile in afghanistan. and unprecedented inside attack has resulted in six deaths over the weekend, raising concerns about how to protect u.s.

minutes left. and they lost. the ravens often found high gear with ray rice ripping off a 43- yard run. that upset joe flaco. the ravens are celebrating at halftime. they did not lose all season when they were leaving at the half. they lost yesterday. a chance to put this away. the ravens on the move. rice with a 37-year -- 37-yard gain. here it goes. flaco. this looks as clean as a touchdown should be. offensive pass interference. awful call. the ravens and up losing by one point. the ravens have to share the blame for the loss, but you hate to share it with the officials.
